Anecdotes, Personalities and Comments, 


ST1GE FOLK and Sometimes OTHERS 


Seekers for stage fame bare been known 
to ascend from the humble poeltlon of 
"prope" to that of "■tar," though the number 
la not vast. Bat many who, beginning In the 
modest, and often tlmea onerous occupation 
of looking; after tbe properties of tbe com- 
pany, bare finally become leading actors. 

Justine Donatella (Justine Is her real 
name, not Jessie), who is to atar In "Zaxa," 
at tbe West End Theatre, for a week'a fare* 
well to bar raat admiring clientele In Harlem, 
telle of tbe humble beginning made by ber 
clever husband, A. B. Stuart, now prominent 
In the cast of "Tbe Fit," playing at tbe 
Academy. Be began •■ "props" at Booth's 
Theatre when, that playhouse waa opened, 
later continuing his dramatic career aa lead* 
Ing man, for twelve years, for Mme. Janau- 

When Stuart waa about fifteen, and targe 
for that age, he left fala Virginia home with- 
out the content of his parents. like many a 
boy ban done before and since. He wanted to 
learn to act, and bis people not approrlng 
of his desire, forbade any thoughts upon tbe 
■object However, young Stuart's mind waa 
made up, and he started for Chicago, where 
he heard that Booth wai playing an engage' 
meat. That great actor being tbe object of 
the boy's admiration, be determined to get to 
blm if possible. Falling at the stage door to 
reach the busy atar, and finding that the 
Brtggs Botel waa bis stopping place, young 
Btuart made application there for a position 
as bell-boy, which he succeeded In getting. 

Learning the number of tbe great trage- 
dian's room, tbe boy faithfully kept bis eye 
on the signal and his ear on the listen for 
a call to that room. For two daya, however, 
be bad no opportunity to serve the object of 
bis dramatic hopes. Other boys got In ahead 
of blm, or he was off on other duties when a 
call to Booth's room was registered. 

Finally an Ice-water call brought the ex- 
pectant boy to the "front," and he joyfully 
carried the requested cool pitcher to the 
door, through which his resolute knock 
brought In answer tbe beautiful, resonant 
tones of tbe actor, bidding him "come In." 

Booth waa busily writing. After placing 
the water on the table at tbe actor's elbow, 
tbe boy stood silently waiting for a word 
from the great man which might give blm 
tbe chance of a word In return. In that 
word he meant to acquaint tbe actor of bis 
great ambition to follow In the elder man's 

"That's all, my boy," said tbe actor, not 
looking up. 

"But I would like to speak to you, Sir," 
said Stuart 

"Indeed," replied Booth kindly, "and what 
do you wish?" 

"I want to be an actor, Sir," exclaimed 
Btuart, all his heart and soul In bis earnest 
reply, which seemed to arrest the attention 
of the tragedian, who, after thinking for an 
I natnnt, said : 

"Well, my theatre In New York will soon 
be opened. Perhaps I can find something 
there for you to do," 

That answer was enough for the boy, who, 
with a "thank you, Sir," disappeared. In bis 
mind was the Intention to get to New York 
or perish In the attempt It took some plan- 
clng and spirit to reach the metropolis, how- 
ever. Not having enough money to pay his 
way there by way of a continuous trip, be 
first expressed his best clothes to New York 
to his own name, to be called for. It took 
several days for the boy to finally reach tbe 
Mecca of his hopes, for, like many another 
young traveler without means, he had to get 
there "the best he could." That part of 
Stuart's career would by Itself make a stir- 
ring chapter. 

Earning a little money by odd Jobs, tbe 
young aspirant finally went to the express 
office and procured his "Sunday-best," and, 
attired In them, through resolute strategy, 
he gained tbe presence of Booth, whose the- 
atre was then about to be opened. 

The actor did not remember the boy, and 
said so. 

"But, Mr. Booth," persisted young Stuart, 
"you engaged me In Chicago," then brought 
to the actor's mind the circumstances of hie 
engagement. The result of the young man's 
persistence was the position of call-boy, then 
"props." While In these capacities he fre- 
quently went out Into the stage light as 
super, finally winning small parts, then 
gradually ascending the dramatic ladder to 

Hundred* of others, besides Btuart, live to 
thank Booth for tbelr histrionic start. 

Stair & rinvllu have engaged Miss Bon- 
stelle, who for two seasons waa the star and 
an Immense favorite at Proctor's One Hun- 
dred and Twenty-fifth Street Theatre. This 
extremely versatile actress will play a Sum- 
mer engagement at the Star, In Buffalo, N. 
Y., opening In "The Unforeseen," which Is a 
play calculated happily to Introduce all the 
company to their new audiences, for this 
plsy la one of that sort that gives tbe whole 
company s chance to show what they can do, 
respectively end collectively. 

Miss Bonstelle Is personally selecting her 
people st the Broadway offices of Stair ft 
Havltn, which company will piny "Zasa," to 
be produced for the first time In New York 
City by a stock organisation. 

Miss Bonstelle, who Is an ardent follower 
of the Cbrlstlnn Science doctrine, has a 
fund of amusing "science" stories about 
youngsters trained In that faith. 

One she related was about a email boy, 
whose small terrier wns very sick. The boy, 

deeply concerned, took his pet to a physician 
whom he knew on hla block, 

"I wish you would cure my dog," he said 
to the doctor, "I'm afraid he's going to die." 

"But your folks are all Christian Scientists, 
and you are too," protested tbe doctor, with 
a twinkle in hla eye. 

"I know that," said the boy, "but I wish 
you'd get at my dog Just tbe same." 

"Why don't you try 'science' on blm?" 
asked the doctor. 

"Well," faltered tbe youngster, "I would, 
but— but— well, the truth Is," with a burst 
of confidence, "the troth Is, I don't want all 
the flgbt taken out of the dog." 

Charles Porter, now prominent with the 
Whitney forces, Is another example of gradu- 
ation from the position of "props." Tbe 
stubbornness of a foat was the Immediate 
cause, though not the principal reason, for 
this. A professional friend of his recalls 
tbe time, eighteen or twenty years ago, when 
Porter was doing tbe "property work" for 
Will T. Clark (now of "Checkera" Co.), who, 
with Ned Naftager, waa barnstorming tbe 
West, In "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and "Peck's 
Bad Boy." 

A part of Porter's duties consisted In 
looking to the needs and care of the "blood- 
hounds'' in the former play, and managing 
tbe "goat's" affairs In the latter. 

Hli decision to graduate Immediately from 
that position was made one dark, stormy 
night, when tbe "Peck's Bad Boy" Co. landed 
late In a small place. The hotel was about 
half a mile from the depot u>d no bus forth- 
coming, "walk" was the order. 

Porter, In charge of the "Wllhelmenus- 
Caprlcornus," ordinarily known as the "Billy 
Goat" was the last of the trailing pedes- 
trians who complslnlngly dragged their tired 
feet down a puddly, muddy street, In search 
of their sleeping piece. 

The animal took a sudden dislike to tbe 
walk, and though Porter pulled bard at tbe 
string around "Billy's" neck, be refused to 
more, preferring to camp In the middle of 
tbe street The last words that Dark, who 
waa disappearing In the distance, heard 
Porter exclaiming, were : 

"Come along! you hungry can-eater," and 
at the same time using words more forceful 
than elegant Then, with another tug at 
the leader, which was resisted by tbe goat 
be continued with the resolution : "No more 
keeper of F/flcIe-rom-bloodnounda for mel no 
more caretaker of PecVa-Bad-Bov-ffoatt for 
Charley Porter I" 

Now Porter Is far, far from hla humble 
start hi the profession.

Whose picture appears upon the front page 
of this Issue, has held a prominent position 
In the amusement world for a number of 
years, In the managerial end of which Ms 
work has left Its Indelible Impress upon the 
vaudeville branch of the profession, a field 
he has broadened and improved by his enter- 
prising methods. His re-entry Into amuse- 
ment fields, ofter a short absence therefrom, 
has created a stir, and brought him again 
into the limelight of public notice. Mr. 
Fynes is a native of Boston, about forty-six 
years old, and first came to New York City 
twenty years ago to become the dramatic 
editor of Tea Nbw Yobk Clippbb. Shortly 
afterward he was made the first dramatic 
editor of The Evening Bun. In 1803 he 
identified himself with B. F. Keith, and his 
fine business acumen made blm an Important 
factor In the development of modern vaude- 
ville, he having been the pioneer In Inducing 
the well known players In tbe legitimate 
ranks to enter vaudeville. He was also one 
of the first managers to Introduce moving 

filctures In America, and has been regarded 
or the past twelve years, first with Mr. Keltli 
and then with F. F. Proctor, aa a leading 
authority on vaudeville and the drams, tea 
a business man of keen insight and dar- 
ing Initiative. Mr. Fynes Is now the 
president of the International Amusement 
and Realty Company, of New York, whicb 
owns the property, called "the cburcn 
corner," on the northwest corner of Finn 
Avenue and One Hundred and Twenty- 
fifth Street, and which has leased the Tblni 
Avenue Theatre, at present closed for »oi- 
provements. Another of Mr. Fynes' amuse- 
ment enterprises Is the establishment of « 
chain of moving picture shows throughout 
New York City and nearby towns, the run- 
let Amusement Company having been in- 
corporated for that purpose, with Mr. Fyi^s 
sa president The latest piece of news id

as the Gllsey estate, numbering from n | * J

Rnecdotes, Personalities and Comments, 


ST1GE FOLK and Some times OTHERS 


Seekers for stage fame have been known 
to ascend from the bumble position of 
"props" to that of "star," though the number 
la not vast. But many who, beginning la the 
modest, and often times onerous occupation 
of looking after tbe properties of the com- 
pany, have finally become leading actors. 

Justine Bonitelle (Justine la ber real 
name, not Jessie), who Is to atar In "Zaxa," 
at tbe West Bad Theatre, for a week's fare- 
well to ber vast admiring clientele In Harlem, 
telle of tbe bumble beginning made by ber 
clever husband, A. H. Stuart, now prominent 
in the cast of "The Pit," playing at tbe 
Academy. Be began at "props" at Booth's 
Theatre when that playhouse was opened, 
later continuing bis dramatic career as lead- 
ing man, for twelve years, for Mme. Janau- 

When Stuart was about fifteen, and large 
for that age, he left bis Virginia home with- 
out the consent of his parents, like many a 
boy has done before and since. Be wanted to 
learn to act, and bla people not approving 
of bla desire, forbade any thoughts upon tbe 
subject. However, young Stuart's mind was 
made up, and be started for Chicago, where 
he heard that Booth was playing an engage- 
ment. That great actor being the object of 
the boy's admiration, be determined to get to 
him If possible. Falling at tbe stage door to 
reach the busy star, and finding that the 
Brlggs Hotel was his stopping place, young 
Stuart made application there for a position 
as hell-boy, which he succeeded In getting. 

Learning the number of the great trage- 
dian's room, tbe boy faithfully kept bis eye 
on the signal and bis ear on tbe listen for 
call to that room. For two days, however, 
he bad no opportunity to serve tbe object of 
hie dramatic bopes. Other boys got In ahead 
of him, or be was off on other duties when a 
call to Booth'a room was registered. 

Finally an Ice-water call brought tbe ex- 
pectant boy to the "front," and he Joyfully 
carried the requested cool pitcher to the 
door, through which bis resolute knock 
brought In answer the beautiful, resonant 
tonea of tbe actor, bidding him "come In." 

Booth was busily writing. After placing 
tbe water on tbe table at the actor's elbow, 
the boy etood silently waiting for a word 
from the great man which might give him 
the chance of a word in return. In that 
word he meant to acquaint tbe actor ot his 
great ambition to follow In tbe elder man's 

"That's all, my boy," said the actor, not 
looking up. 

"But I would like to speak to you, Sir," 
said Stuart 

"Indeed," replied Booth kindly, "and what 
do 'you wish?" 

"I want to be an actor, Sir," exclaimed 
Stuart, all bla heart and soul In bla earnest 
reply, which seemed to arrest the attention 
of tbe tragedian, who, after thinking for an 
Instant, aald : 

"Well, roy theatre In New York will soon 
be opened. Perhaps I can find something 
there for you to do." 

That answer was enough for tbe boy, who, 
with a "thank you. Sir," disappeared. In bis 
mind was the Intention to get to New York 
or perish in tbe attempt. It took some plan- 
ning aud spirit to reach the metropolis, bow- 
ever. Not having enough money to pay bis 
way there by way of a continuous trip, be 
first expressed bla best clothes to New York 
to bla own name, to be called for. It took 
several daye for the boy to finally reach the 
Mecca of bla hopes, for, like many another 
young traveler without means, he had to get 
there "tbe best be could." That part of 
Btuart'a career would by Itself make a stir- 
ring chapter. 

Earning a little money by odd Jobs, tbe 
young aspirant finally went to the express 
office and procured his "Sunday-best," and, 
attired In them, through resolute strategy, 
he gained the presence of Booth, whose the- 
atre was then about to be opened. 

The actor did not remember tbe boy, and 
said so. 

"But, Mr. Booth," persisted young Stuart, 
"you engayod me In Chicago," then brought 
to tbe actor's mind the circumstances of his 
engagement. The result of the young man's 
persistence was the position of call-boy, then 
"props." While In these capacities he fre- 
quently went out Into tbe stage light as 
super, finally winning small parts, then 
gradually ascending the dramatic ladder to 

Hundreds of others, besides Stuart, live to 
thank Dootb for their histrionic start. 

Stair & Hnvlln have engaged Miss Bon- 
stclto, who for two seasons was the star and 
an Immense favorite at Proctor's Ono Hun- 
dred and Twenty-fifth Street Theatre. This 
extremely versatile actress will piny a Sum- 
mer engagement nt the Star, In Buffalo, N. 
Y„ opening In "The Unforeseen," which Is a 
play calculated happily to Introduce all the 
company to their new audiences, for this 
ploy la one of that sort that gives the whole 
company a chance to ehow what tbey can do, 
respectively and collectively. 

Miss Bonstelle 1b personally selecting her 
people at the Broadway offices of SLatr A 
Ilavlln, which company will play "Znsa," to 
be produced for tho first tlmo In New York 
City by a stock organization. 


Miss Bonstelle, who Is an ardent follower 
of the Christian Science doctrine, has a 
fund of amusing "science" stories about 
youngsters trained In, that faith. 

One bIic related was about a small boy, 
whose small terrier was very alck. The boy, 

deeply concerned, took bla pet to a physician 
whom be knew on bis block. , 

"I wish you would core my dog," be said 
to tbe doctor, "I'm afraid he's going to die." 

"But your folks are sll Christian Scientists, 
and you are too," protested the doctor, with 
a twinkle la bis eye. 

"I know that," said the boy, "but I wish 
you'd get at my dog Just the same." 

"Why don't you try 'science* on him?" 
asked tbe doctor. 

"Well," faltered tbe youngster, "I would, 

but— but— well, the troth is," with a burst 

of confidence, "the truth Is, I don't want all 

the fight taken ont of the dog." 


Charles Porter, now prominent with tbe 
Whitney forces, Is another example of gradu- 
ation from the position of "props." The 
stubbornness of a goat was the Immediate 
cause, though not tbe principal reason, for 
this. A professional friend of bis recalls 
tbe time, eighteen or twenty years ago, when 
Porter was doing the "property work" for 
Will T. Clark (now of "Checkers" Co.), who, 
with Ned Naftiger, was barnstorming tbe 
West, In "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and "Peck's 
Bad Boy." 

A part of Porter's duties consisted In 
looking to the needs and care of the "blood- 
hounds" In the former play, and managing 
the "goat's*' affairs la the latter. 

Bis decision to graduate immediately from 
that position:' was made one dark, stormy 
night, when the "Peck's Bsd Boy" Co. landed 
late In a email place. The hotel was about 
half a mile from the depot, and no bus forth- 
coming, "walk" was the order. 

Porter, In charge of tbe "Wllbelmenus- 
Caprlcornus," ordinarily known as tbe "Billy 
Goat," was the last of the trailing pedes- 
trlsns who complalnlngly dragged their tired 
feet down a puddly, muddy street, in search 
of their sleeping place. 

The animal took a sudden dislike to the 
walk, and though Porter pulled hard at tbe 
string around "Billy's" neck, he refused to 
move, preferring to camp In the middle of 
tbe street The last words that Clark, who 
was disappearing In the distance, beard 
Porter exclaiming, were : 

"Come along 1 you hungry can-eater," and 
at the same time nslng words more forceful 
than elegant Then, with another tug at 
the leader, which was resisted by tbe goat, 
be continued with the resolution : "No more 
keeper ot Uncle-Tom-bloodhounds for me I no 
more caretaker of Peck'»-Ba4-Boy-gaat$ for 
Charley Porter I" 

Now Porter Is far, far from his humble 
start In the profession.

Over $35 in a Week. 

The FIBBT AUTOMATON PUS READER thai was ever pot

record breaking average (or fire months. 

The machine waa In an nnlavoranle location. The ti me in 
tbe dullest part ol tbe season. And It waa lbs FIBBT aUCHDTE- 
sub| ect to the usual hold-ups that occur Jnit belore a new Inven- 
tion gets Into absolutely period running condition. 

What la the reason lor this record? 

Tbe Automaton Palm Reader Is ABSOLUTELY DHIODE In ill 
Idea. It actually PEELS THE PATjH and delivers a reading baaed 
on that individual band's ehape, size and general characteristics. 

It dutt lngnlt hea HIKE dlllerent types ol hands, and delivers 
TWENTY-FIVE separate and distinct readings for each typo-each 
reading skillfully prepared by the famous Palmist, Fletcher. 

Tbe phenomenal money making capacity ol the Automaton 
Palm Header Is based en human cariosity. A copper in tbe slot 
causes the machine to feel the palm with the small metaUlo 

Joints, and ONE reading is delivered. Then not one patron In a 
undred oan resist the temptation lo pnt in HOKE COPPERS and 
get part or ill of the HEMAININB T WEHTY-FOUR READ1N0S 
based on bis or ber individual type of band. 

Then the news spreads like wildfire. The readings are pre- 
served, discussed, and tbe incredulous come and add lo the 
Automaton's intake. 

0A8LBH, who have made many el the meat successful slot

with several new productions on the 
hoards, Kaster weeb has been a very busy one 
for the local seeker of amusement. - Tfare* 
out of the Qve new productions are "revues," 
as they term them in Paris, the other two 
twlng musical comedies. Last Saturdny 
night "The nalrymalds" had Its first per- 
formance at ins Apollo. Monday afteroon'i 
"The Revue" wdH done at the Coliseum. Wed- 
nesday night ibe Km pi re management offered 
lit '■revile," entitled "Venus." -Cast lea lu 
Spain." another "revue." had, Its premiere 
at the Royalty Wednesdey night, sod to- 
night we have "The flfri Behind the Coun- 
ter." si WyndhsmV. The best houses were 
uoi oVerlilh-d during live eurlv part of tde 
week, as Ihe better class were out of town 
Hpenrtlnic the holldny_pe'rlod from Thursday 
of last week until .Tiiesdny or this week, 
and the weather was no Hummerllke that 
many In town snugbt outdoor entertain- 
ments, especially Waster Monday afternoon. 

"The Dairymaid,,," produced a week ago 
to-night at the Apollo, Is the work of five 
people. A. ftj, Thompson and Mr. Court* 
nelge looked after the construction apd the 
wording of the play: Paul A. Ruben* and 
Arthur Wlmperls did the lyrics, and Mr. 
Rubens and Frank K. Tours composed the 
music. The general output of the quintuple 
nlllnnre Is a frollrsome. tuneful production, 
thoroughly Kngllnh In setting, and healthy 
In tone: We have farm Ufe. sea life and 
school life, and. though there Is very Utile 
attempt mode at a coherent story, divert- 
ing and pretty Incidents ore deftly strung 
together, In sMdi a way as to satisfy nli. 
A brief Idea of .the story: Lady Brodenell 
starts a dairy farm, chlepy for the Isolation 
of her two nieces from the male Rex. But 
she does not take Into consideration her two 
nephewH, who are connected with the navy. 
The result Is that roou after the start of the 
play we find a whole party of officers from 
nn BirgllBh warship making love to the dairy-

I hnve learned that Cosmo HnmlUon lias 
Just concluded arrangements for the produc- 
tion In America of a revised version 'of bis 
three act piece, "The Wisdom of Folly." 
which was played at the Comedy some three 
years ago, and a one act play of a atrong 
character, entitled "Gran'father Coquesne," 
dramntlxed by him from. a story In his new 
hook; "Natures Vngabond." It Is said that 
the. Knglish rights of the letter play have 
been bought by;C. Auhroy Smith. - ■ • ; 
'* I .forgot to mention in mv above' remarks 
about new product Ions, tbe lirst performance 
In this country of "Dorothy o' the Hall," by 
ruul Kester nnd Charles Major, which oc- 
enrred at the New last Saturday night. As 
the play has been seen In America, being 
played by Bertha <ialland, and under the 
title of "Dorothy Vernon, of Haddon Hall," 
a -review of the utorv is n»>t necesssrv. The 
••original romantic ploy." as it Is programmed. 
hnd a most successful opening nod a' lone. 
pmtltftble run Is expected. Julia Neilson Is 
ihe Dorothy, and Fred'Terry, the "Sir John 
Manners, of the cast. 

Charles Wyndhum left London' last week 
Thursday, for a vacation of several weeks. 
He went to Naples, and will also take 10 
Sicily before be returpa to London. At the 
end of May the lease of the Criterion, which 
he granted to Frank Ciirzon, will exnlre, and 
It It likely that Mv. Wyndham.may n'ppear.Sn 
a play on the stage of that thesire either In 
June' or a few months later. 

The "revue" at the Royalty, entitled 
"Castles lo Spain." might be called. bv some 
h comic opera. It Is divided Into two acts. 
The first act takes place la a flat on St. 
James Street, where we find a Frenchman, 
of the usual »tnge l vpc. In love wli h 
a pretty. American girl, the daughter of an 
American millionaire. The second act takes 

friace In Spain, where the Frenchman bos 
leco'me, for some unknown reason, a de- 
tective. There Isn't any apparent plot, nor 
Is one necessary, for that matter.' as tbe 
performance consists of a couple of dozen 
of songs, , Intermingled with some comedy 
lines. Horry Frogson and Mov de Sousu. 
fresh from Drury Lane pantomime triumphs, 
have the two leading parts In the new piece, 
nnd most Of the work Is left for them to do. 
Miss De Sousa made an unqualified aucceas the 
opanlng night. She Is a big London favorltw 
which means that her career ns such will not 
he short lived. Mr. Fragson shares with 
Miss de Sousa the chief honors of the show. 
i. the piece Is not a success financially, it 
will be the fault of the location of the house, 
which, like the Scnla, Is Inconvenient to reach. 

The two new* Barrie plays. "Punch" a'nd 
"Josephine," at the Comedy, are not turning 
people away, nnd Charles Frohman Is said 
to have definitely decided upon the show 
which Is to follow current bit) at that house. 
"Rallies," the comedy drama, which, has en- 
joyed such success In the States tor the past 
two years, U stated to be the play selected 
by Mr. Frohman. The exact date of Its 
pyrmicrt; Is not known at present. 

"Maurlcette," the play In which H. B. Irv- 
lug Is nppeariog In at- the Lyric, has been 
greatly altered nud Improved since its first 
performance Rt that house n short time ago. 
it Is now preceded by a drnmntie version of 
Robert Louis Stevenson's "Markhelm." Tbe 
scene of action uf ihe playlet Is- tbe 
shop of an old dealer Id curios. Markhelm 
visits the shop Christmas Day, when tbe old 
owber is quite alone- He talks wltb him of 
life and death, ami love and conscience, . and 
coming to business* makes pretence of want- 
ing to purchase <i present for n wealthy ladr 
he Is about to marry. He kills the old man 
and fills his pockets with his victim's gold. 
Suddenly to bltu appears a Spirit — a familiar 
Spirit that bos been with him and watched 
his conduct from childhood onward. To that 
Spirit the murderer, with iheblbod hardly dry 
upon bis hands, makes his excuses. He makes 
nil manner of excuses lo tbe Spirit for his 
many wild deeds, hut the Spirit reminds hi pi 
that nolhlng bm death will stop his down 
wnrd ctireer. Markhelm turns penitent and 
decides lo confess to the bid dealer's ser- 
vant, when she returns, that he has kilted 
her manter. 

A three net comedv. by Herbert Sweare. 
eutltled "A Tight Corner, has been accepted 
by Mr. and Mrs. Kendall, who will ploy tbe 
leading nnrta In the new piece. It Is now' in 
rehearsal, and will lie dono for the first time 
nt the Theatre Roynl. Portsmouth, \Inv 0. 

Phyllis Dare, wbo has a big nnraejn, the 
musical comedy Hue In London, and who has, 
onlv Just comnleted her fifteenth birthday. 
will not enter upon any hew engagement* 
fnr a time, as she Is going lo a school In 
Brussels In order to complete her education. 
She returns to ihe stage at Christmas. She 
ptaved Kllsllnc Mm pert. In *'The Catch 
of the Sensan," for many weeks, at the 
Vaudeville, lest Summer. 

An extraordinary scene Is said to have oc- 


'at. pie Petntteni .Theatre, , 
3»y night, during tbe first f 1 ' 
__ 'Opera, "A»h)#.' r The play was being 
conducted , by Maaragol. The audience wished 
trie, baritone to repeat a popular selection, 
hpt Msscsgnt. who disapproves of encores, 
proceeded with the performance. The audi- 
ence persisted. MaxcaKOl refused. The up- 
roar IffW terrific, and the conductor was 
bombarded with cushions, which people threw 
from the stalls, i He was flnallv obliged to 
leave the orchestra., At the end of. half an 
hour the manager announced that Mascngnl 
would accede to their wishes and allow the 
encore. The composer's return lo bis cbalr 
wns greeted with great applause. 

Charles Frobtnon has commissioned Sey- 
mour Hlrks io write tbe libretto of a new 
musical play, to be produced In America and 
Lntflnnd. The subject will l>e o modern ver- 
sion of "As Yon Like It." The composer has 
not been selected as yet.

The long promised "revue" came to pass 
at the Coliseum-last Monday, and Mr. Stoll 
at lest offers an entertainment that Is In 
keeping with the beautiful theatre, and ought 
to nil that house foi- many months. As stated 
before n plot u* unnecessary with a "revue." 
Victor de T cot tens, the author and producer, 
has tsken Robinson Crusoe as his centre 
piece, 'round which he builds tbe "revue." 
Crusoe, Or Compere (Tom K. -Murray), re- 
turns from bis > island 'to tbe world of 
1 noo, nnd U taken In hand by the Commere 
(Billy Burke), who endeavors lo show him 
ibe slahts in London and Paris. The "re- 
vue" In a succession of beautiful pictures, 
beautiful scene* nnd beautiful girls, and the 
mounting Is on a scale that has never before 
been etempted at the Coliseum. One tableau 
follows another, till ope really wonders If 
one has not ben too generously supplied with 
the music, scenery, costumes, etc. The one 
fault nt present wltb the offering Is that 
Mr. Murray and Miss Burke, who are feat- 
ured In the production, are like interlocutors. 
and have little opportunity to display their 
ability. However, Mr. Murray tells me 
that he hns been told to go ahead and 
put some of his oWft business Into bin 
part. Ar a quiet comedian Mr. Murray 
has few equals, and tbe chances' for the In- 
troduction of some of h)s comedy "cut ups" 
are' great, and he Is sure to take full ad- 
vantage of every loop bole. Miss Burke, the 
dniiirbtcr of Burke, of Burke, Andrus and 
Frisco. Is a very handttome girl, and pos- 
sesses a very pleasing voice. Others In the 
prominent parts wbo do good work are the 
Dandles,- Arthur conquest, George Lashwood, 
and Brown and Le Cfefq. The "revue" takes 
un the whole performance, lasting a little 
over two hours. Tbe opening day Mr. de 
Cot tens was called before the curtain at the 
finish, and he Is deserving of the many nice 
things said about his production by the press 
nnd public.

and front there sleepers to New York ami

tel accommodations in Kansas City were ex- 
tended, while [nylng off In that city. 

Jlmitiy Wall writes: "I believe tlic 'entire 
population wus on the Btrcets thirty fcconils 
utter the shock : scenes were Indescribable ; 
'he city Is a wreck. I was In bed at tho 
Eugene Hotel, on M'Fnrrel Street, when the 
ilrst earthquake shuck occurred. Tbe sen- 
sation was like that of a railroad train 
jumping tint track, rmuilug utoug the ilea. 
and phjuging Into n ntviiie. After being 
thrown out of bed I stuggered to the window. 
I had no time to save anything, hut rushed 
into the Kt ruth and escaped Injury. The 
streets were thronged with people. ' Fires 
broke out. and pslideuionlum reigned. No 
theatres went left si muling in Hie city. A 
shurl lime utter leaving tlie' hotel, tbe Eu- 
gene was dynamited, l made my way to 
the Crocker ground on the hill and camped 
there nil night. Water wus scarce. As 
much us lift v cents was paid for n small 
glass of water. Fifty dollar)* was charged 
to move trunks ten blocks, Thousands .of 
men and women could be seen dragging Their 
trunks with them lowurd the parks for 
safely. Thousands camped on the grass 111 
front of the St. Francis Hotel. Before stak- 
ing my way ro the ferry the Falrmount Ho- 
tel had caught lire. All Hie |»eople playing 
the Orphoum have been accounted for, with 
the exception of Charley Sweet and w'fe. 
Nobody bus seen theru, but they left their 
hotel. Tlie Agoust Family lost everything, 
and will go direct to Europe. Golcihan lost 
many of his eat:: and iiIgcmiH, and ' we all 
lost our wardrobe. Clly Is complete wreck." 

John W. World and Mlndcll Kingston 
make the following statement : -"Wiped out 
by the 'Frisco earthquake. Mrs, World's 
mother, Mrs. Caroline Dreyfus, lived within 
the stricken xone, nad although we hova tele- 
graphed repeatedly, we' can get no word 
trom or nltout her. We owned a business 
block on Minnie Street, between Second and 
Third Streets, a hitit block from the Grand 
Opera House; a flat building on the samo 
street, between Fifth and Sixth Streets, and 
a business block and ftut building on Fifth 
Street, between Fohsome nnd Harriet Streets, 
right In the centre of the burned district. 
We were offered $^8,000 for these properties, 
so wc know they must have been worth at 


'Frisco, nor will there be a show hero for 
some months to come,

And calling tor someono to dig thetn 
out. After a time men began digging 
over us. telling us to keep up .courage and 
that we would soon bo sate. The earth- 
quake occurred about o'clock, and It was 
S.L r i before we were Unally taken out. We 
were not Injured except for Several bruises, 
but I never want to go through such an ex- 
perience again ab long as 1 live. My wife 
was In n very nervous state, nnd we had to 
leave town tu n very short time. Before 
leaving someone, took us to a Mr. Carrlng-

gave us clothes (for we had on only our

duction or "Cousin Lrnilta," a tbrco net 
comedy, by Frederick Paulding, which was 
originally produced April IP at MIddletown, 
Cntiti. The story revolves mound the ex- 
periences of Louisa Furbell, n widow, whdae 
late husband has left nn estate of $5,0On,O00, 
bequeathed io herself and live other heir*, 
giving her the absolute power to portion out

to commend the piece to public favor. -The

of well known players, but the various incm- 
hem, ivlui one exception, struggled through 
i licit* respective roles, making the most of 
the few opportunities offered litem. The one 
exception was fjeorgc Frobeii, who, In the

F. M. Bhortrldge, who la styled "Audience 
Organiser for Frank Mahara'a Minstrels," 
tag a story of the "Far-West opry hall 
owner," of which he mast have been re- 
minded by almllar remtDlacencei related re* 
cently In this column. He says he does not 
vouch for the truth of It, but tells It aa It 
waa told to him by a manager of a small 
company that waa "practicing out" on the 
■mall-town Inhabitants wherever they could 
get a hall and an audience. 

The little band of Tbeaplana, headed by 
the leading man, who waa also manager, 
■lighted from the train. A young country- 
man, dressed In Jeans, with a flailing pole 
over hla shoulder and a bait box attached to 
a strap about bis waist, approached the 
group, and with a quick eye singled out the 

"Be you the boas o' the show that's a-goln' 
to do opry In my hall tola afternoon an' to- 
night?" he aaked, In the nasal twang of 
those far removed from metropolitan prox- 
"Indeed I be," assured the manager. 
"Well," continued the local man, reaching 
Into a pocket and drawing therefrom a large, 
old fashioned door key, "bere*a the key to 
the hall." 

"What do I wsnt the key for? You're 
going to be there, aren't you?" aaked the 
surprised manager. 

"Nope 1" exclaimed the country hall owner, 
"I'm goln* a-flsbln'." 

"But you'll be needed at the hall," expost- 
ulated the manager, "there are lota of things 
you'll have to supply, and If there's no one 
belonging to the house there, what am I to 

"Jes help yourself to everything," Mid the 
man, hospitably, "but as fer me, I'm goln' 
o-flshln'," he continued, with evident disre- 
gard for either profit or loss. "You see, I 
would a-been here this afternoon, but I for- 
got the date and fixed up to go to the pond, 
an' even now would a-steyed, but I've got 
nil my bait cut, an* can't waste It, fer you 
know," he went on, "It's been a dry season 
here and the bait lays low. So lougl till 

Joseph Yarrick, the manipulator of the 
Magic Kettle, with which he mystifies and 
at the same time amuses hla large audiences, 
la the recipient of many letters from people 
wishing to own one or more of these Inter- 
esting utensils. Their requeata show the 
various Impressions which the kettle has 
made upon them. 

Evidently the writer of the following let- 
ter was Impressed with the utility of this 
useful kitchen necessity, In aiding In the so- 
lution of the servant problem. It also ap- 
pealed to his business Instincts ss a hard- 
ware merchant. 

"Mr. Josef Yarrick, Beer Sir (began the 
letter), pleea cote me prlcea on your magic 
kittle as I saw spoke of In The Clipper. I 
wood like to put a few in stock as they 
wood go grate In this town, fer most of the 
wlmraea here bss to do there own work as 
gurls are hard to get" (Signed). 

The country merchant who wished to pur- 
those In wholesale lots can have no Idea of 
the value Yarrick places upon his Magic Ket- 
tle. So great Is It that be has offered a re* 
ward of $5,000 to any one who can reproduce 
hla feats — without bis permission. 
What people don't know about the drama — 
and this number Includes a few managers — 
would fill many a book. Ignorance even aa 
to the plays and players of Shakespeare's 
dramatic works, which Is nstonlBhlogly pre- 
valent, was amusingly Illustrated In the 
hearing of Miss Uonstelle, one night, when 
that clever actress had a "week off," and 
was doing the theatres. 

The play was "As You Like It," Rosalind 
being played by that' very gifted actress, 
Henrietta Crosman. The proprietor of a the- 
atre known to Miss Bonstellc, was witnessing 
the performance with a handsomely ap- 
pareled woman, with whom he was discuss- 
lug the play between the first and second 
acts. Itofcrrlng to the unusually beautiful 
scenery, which formerly had been constructed 
for Julia Arthur, Ihe lady remarked: 

"Wasn't It lovely of Miss Arthur to give 

nil that expensive Bccncry to Miss Crosman 1" 

"Why," ssld the manager, who had not 

been so very long In the theatrical business, 

"did Julia Arthur ever play Rosalind?" 

"Yes, Indeed," was the young woman's re- 
ply, "she waa the original Rosalind." 

"Not a bit of it 1" was the knowing re- 
ply. "Why, what's the matter with poor 
Adelaide Nellson ! She was the original Rosa- 

Miss Bonstclle recalls another InBtance of 
in familiarity with the great writers. The 
actress was awaiting her hour one day at 
the studio of a vocal teacher. The young 
woman who preceded her was the daughter 
of a wealthy contractor, who was also receiv- 
ing vocal instruction. The pupil, who had a 
really fine voice, was being Instructed In the 
method of the trill, which she accomplished 
with unexpected case. Taking a full breath 
she started In on a long trill, when she sud- 
denly stopped, and with a gush of poetic 
feeling and pride in her accomplishment, she 
exclaimed : 

"My I wasn't that a long one. It reminds 
me ot Shakespeare's great brook poem, 'I Go 
On Forever.* " 

Itomola and Williams, comedy sketch per- 
formers, filled In vacation time last Summer 
traveling through Indiana with a small tent 

show. . Arriving at Qeorge Ade's home town 
In that State, some of the company sat down 
In the park to await the wagons which car* 
rled the camping outfit. 

Miss Williams has a pet parrot, which she 
fondly prices, and which she carried with 
her on this Summer trip. Taking the cover 
from the cage, she placed "Polly" beside her. 
The usual complement of curious towns- 
people followed the troupe to their camp, and 
some of these were deeply Interested in the 

"Look, Bill I" exclaimed one of them, nudg- 
ing a friend, "them show folks hev got a 
green owl In that thsre cage." 

At another time, when some of the com- 
pany were eating their dinner under the 
cook tent, three fairly well dressed young 
men came up and stood In the entrance, 
where they watched the appetizing process 
for about fire minutes. 

"Well, I never I" exclaimed one of them. 
"These show folks eat Just like we do." 

Tom Waters, of "Neighborly Neighbors" 
fame, walked out upon the stage of the "opry 
hall" one afternoon, where they were to play 
a "one-nlght-stand," and noting that there 
were no wings within five feet of the pros- 
cenium, asked the Janitor ; 

"Where are your torment on?" 

"Oh, they'll be back d'reckly," was the re- 
ply. "They're out jes now a-pasaln* bills of 
the show fer to-night-" 

Dan Darlelgh, of the "81 Btebblns" Co., 
sends ua a letter received by him from an 
"aspirant" last August 

"Dear Sir, Dan Darlelgh" (It began), "I

Late last week Lena ABhwell began her 
season st the Savoy with a production of 
Clothllde Graves' new and original three act 
play, "The Bond of Ninon." ft waa well re- 
ceived by a houseful of people. The story, 
as hinted at some time ago, deals with a 
Ninon de l'Escole, a French beauty, and fre- 

?uenter of the Court of Louis XVI, who 
avors a secret lover In the young and hand- 
some Chevalier de Beiorme, with the king 
himself poBlng as a rival. The action virtu- 
ally revolves Itself Into an Intrigue taking 
the form of a mental duel between the king 
and his Bubject. The odds of power on the 

Cart of the royal admirer are counterbalanced 
y the affection of Ninon for the simple 
chevalier. After several daring deeds, de 
Uelorne 1b pardoned by the king, who sur- 
renders Ninon to bis srms. 

u. B. Irvlng's tour In the States, which 
will be under the guidance of Nixon A Zim- 
merman, will last for sixteen weeks, as at 
present arranged. The American tour will 
be opened on Oct. 8, at the New Amsterdam, 
New York City, where Mr. Irving will re- 
main live weeks. Boston, Philadelphia and 
ull the principal cities will be visited, the 
tour ending In Washington. Mr. Irving will 
be seen In some of the plays In which bis 
father was bo successful. "Maurlcette" and 
"Markbeim," the plays In which Mr. Irvine 
Is now appearing at the Lyric, will hold 
prominent positions In his American reper- 
tory. Before crossing the Atlantic Mr. Irv- 
ing and company will play a short tour of 
eix weeks In the provinces, opening on Aug. 
0. "Maurlcette" and "Markbeim" will be 
played on this tour. Most of the member* of 
the Lyric cast will accompany Mr. Irving 
to the States. 

Granville Barker and Lillian McCarthy 
were married one day this week. Miss Mc- 
Carthy, who Is well known aa an actress, 
created the part of Ann Wbltefleld In Ber- 
nard Shaw's play, "Man and Superman," and 
when the play was received at the Court last 
Autumn Mr. Barker played the part of John 
Tanner, the man whom Ann captivates and 
marries In spite of his determination to re- 
sist lovo and remain single. Mr. and Mrs. 
Barker left for Paris Immediately after the 
ceremony. They will meet Mr. Shaw there, 
the author being at present engaged In sit- 
ting for M. Rodin, the famous Bculptor. It 
Is Bald that both bride and groom, like the 
author of "Man and Superman," are vege- 

"Ills House la Order" 1b having a glorious 
run at the St. James. Its one hundredth 
performance was celebrated last Tuesday 

The EngllBh public are to be afforded an 
opportunity of showing their sympathy with 
tae Bufferera In the recent Ban Francisco 
catastrophe, Charles Frohman having de- 
termined to devote the entire gross receipts 
of this evening's performance at the Duke 
of York's, to the augmentation of the fund 
organised In their behalf. The entertainment 
will consist, as usual, of "All-of-a-Sudden 
Peggy," but, In addition, Miss Tempest will 
be heard In aeveral of her most popular songs. 
Hon, Whltelaw Reld. the American Ambas- 
sador, has promised to be present on the 

"The Qlrl Behind the Counter," the new 
musical play which Frank Cunon did at 
Wyndham'a last Saturday night, proved to 
be a big success In every way. The story : 
Winnie Wlllougbby, tho daughter of Sir Gen- 
eral Wlllougbby, Is engaged to Viscount 
Gushlngton, the usual brainless aristocrat of 
A long line of musical comedy. It Is purely 
An engagement of convenience. He prefers 
the astute manageress of the "Malson Duval." 
Winnie, who Is fancy free, suspects Gusb- 
Ington's fickleness, and persuades Millie, the 
manageress, to Install her as one of the girls, 
eo that ebe might keep blm under observa- 
tion and find a reasonable excuse for termin- 
ating the Irksome contract, Winnie Is Im- 

mediately Installed, end, within fire minutes, 
left In sole charge of the cash desk. Charlie 
Chetwynd, ex-mnn-about-town, has Just re- 
turned from African gold fields, sod, coming 
to the "Malson Duval," naturally falls In 
love with Winnie. The "Malson Duval" 
seems to exist more for the disposal of 
tickets for a baron's court carnival than for 
the negotiation of legitimate sales. The car- 
nival fs In the air. Everyone Is going. Shop- 
walkers, salewomen and customers. Adol- 
phus pilfers a ten pound note from the 
cashier's desk, so as to enable him to 
cat out the German doorkeeper and make a 
favorable impreitslon on Susie, the cashier. 
The note Is missed. Winnie, "the girl be- 
hind the counter,'' Is suspected. Chetwynd 
champions her, but, In spite of this, she Is 
turned adrift. In the second act the real 
culprit Is discovered, and In the end he Is 
pardoned, and the customary happy pairing 
off of everyone concerned happens. A very 
fine cast presents the musical piece. 

The two hundred and fifty authors who 
have sent in plays for the Playgoers' 
Club prize competition have received a heavy 
blow by reason of the selection committee's 
decision not to produce any of the works 
submitted. All the plays, says the secretary, 
In an explanatory letter, were carefully read 
nnd considered until all but two were elim- 
inated, and these were submitted to Philip 
Carr, who had promised to produce the work 
of the prize winner. Mr. Carr, however, was 
reluctantly compelled to agree with the com- 
mute that these were not of a nature to 
meet the requirements of a West End theatre. 

I understand that W. B. Msughan's new 
comedy. "Lady Inderlck," the American 
rights of which were secured some time ago 
by Llebler & Co. for Elds Jeffreys, Is to be 


The above is a picture of Miss Hughes, the 
talented English actress whom James K. 
Hackett brought to this country to Interpret 
one of the leading roles In the English farce, 
"Mr. HopklnBon, now running at the Fields 
Theatre. Miss Hughes was the original 
Country Mouse on the other aide, which 
Ethel Barrymore played here. She also shone 
resplendent as the star of "Sweet Nancy," 
which ran for five hundred nlghtB at the 
Criterion and Lyric Theatres in London. 
When she first appeared on the English stage, 
in "A Bit of Old Chelsea " the critics hailed 
her aa the most versatile and talented 
actress that London had Been In a long time. 
She played the character role In this piece 
over a thousand times, and leaped Into the 
very front rank of favorite players In Eng- 
land through It Few more prepossessing 
actresses than Miss Hughes have come to us 
from across the pond, and It looks as If a 
permanent Broadway engagement for this 
charming player will keep her here for an 
Indefinite period. Off the stage Miss Hughes 
is refreshingly frank and unaffected, and Is 
a writer of short stories of no mean ability. 

done early next Fall In New York. Mr. 
Maugban's latest novel, "The Bishop's 
Apron," has attracted general attention, and 
It 1b more than likely that a stage version 
of the story will be seen at a West End the- 
atre In the near future. 

Madge Glrdlestone, after a successful sea- 
son of nine months, playing second to 
Maxlme Elliott, In "Her Great. Match," has 
returned to London from the States for a 
short vacation. Charles Frohman has en-

This Is Ellen Terry's great week. Last 
night Beerbohm Tree revived "The Merry 
Wives of Windsor" at His Majesty's, and 
Miss Terry appeared In her old part of Mrs. 
Page. The actual anniversary of Miss Terry's 
first appearance In the stage la* to-day, and 
she will make two appearances — In the after- 
noon at the Adelphla, In order to fulfill her 
great wish to play In a Shakespearean play, 
she will, by consent of Otno Stuart, appear 
la the small part of a nun, In "Measure for 
Measure," and In the evening at the Court 
she will appear aa Lady Cicely Waynflete, in 
"Captain flrnsabound'a Conversion." LeBt 
night, at H1b Majesty's, Mr. Tree, on behalf 
of the Playgoers' Club, presented Miss Terry 
with a casket of solid silver, measuring 
eleven and one-half Inches In length, five ana 
one-half inches high, and seven and one-half 
Inches In width. On the lid are scenes rep- 
resenting the Olympian games, and on the 
sides are scenes showing the places of enter- 
tainment In Athens. On the front Is en- 
graved the following Inscription : "A token 
of r ffertlon and esteem from the members of 
the PlnyerB' Club, to Ellen Terry, on the cele- 
bration of her Jubilee, April 28, 1006." 

The most Interesting feature of the pro- 
posed performance at Drury Lane Theatre 
celebration of the jubilee of Ellen Terry, 
may be a play presented entirely by mem- 
bers of the Terry family. The following 
members of the family are Identified with the 
theatrical profession : Ellen Terry, Marlon 
Terry, Kate Terry (sisters), Fred Terry (a 
brother), Charles Terry and his daughters, 
Beatrice and Minnie: Olive Terry, daughter 
of the late Florence Terry : Gordon Craig and 
Edith Craig, son and daughter of Ellen 
Terry, and George Terry, who was for four- 
teen years treasurer to Henry Irving. 

Vcdreune A Barker, managers of the Court, 
have secured a new play, entitled "The 
Silver Box," by John Galsworthy, which will 
have Its first production next Fall at one of 
the series of Vedrenne-Barker matinees. 

Alfred Butro's new play, "The Fascinating 
Mr. Vanderveldt," had Its first production 
lu this country r.t the Qarrlck last Thurs- 
day, Arthur Bourchler and Charles Frohman 
being the producers. Its success was com- 
plete, and as the story of the play Is known 
in America. I will not repeat (t. Mr. Rour-

Mr. Tree's brother. Jullns Beerbohm, died 
last Saturday morning, from doable pneu- 
monia. The deceased bad been a great trav- 
eler, and some years ago published a volume, 
entitled "Wanderings on Patagonia." 

Charles Wyndhom, who was present at the 
first night of the new play, "La Grlffe," at 
the Renaissance Theatre, Paris, has secured 
the English rights In the piece, and he pro- 
poses to play, In the English version, the role 
of Acbllle Cortelon, created In Paris by M. 
Luclen Gultry. . __ 

The Hicks Theatre, now being built on 
Shaftesbury Avenue, Is now on the boards to 
open next December. The show to be done 
at the time may possiblv be a new edition 
of "The Beauty of Bath," which Is at present 
meeting with favor at the Aldwych. The 
Hicks house will be under the management 
of Seymour Hicks and Charles Frohman, as 
will also be another theatre next door, which 
la in process of construction. A new version 
of "Alice In Wonderland" may be the opener 

Robert Brottgh, son of the late Robert 
Barnabas Brough, brother of Fanny Brough, 
and nephew of "Lai" Brough, died a short 
time ago In Australia. The deceased made 
his mark on the London stage before leaving 
for Australia, and was a very Important 
figure In the burlesque at the Gaiety, and 
comic opera and farce comedy at the Opera 
Comlque. For a long time before his death 
he had been manager of the BUou Theatre, 
Melbourne. _. 

I understand that "The Little Cherub 
will be withdrawn from the stage of the 
Prince of Wales' In a few weeks, for a seven 
days' rest, during which several changes will 
be made In the musical play. 

Charles Wilson, who has for some years 
been responsible tor the successful b-llets at 
the Alhambra, Is soon leaving that house to 
accept an engagement with Oscar Hammer- 
Btelo. His resignation 1b to take effect after 
the production of a new ballet at the Al- 
hambra, due next month. It Is very likely 
that Mr. WUson will be Identified with Mr. 
Hammersteln's grand opera productions In 
New York. 

The Lyceum did not close last Saturday 
night, as wbb predicted by all, arrangements 
having been made whereby that house will be 
carried oa In conjunction with the Macnaghten 
circuit. The house was opened as usual on 
Monday, but with the Macnaghten billing 
matter very much In evidence. 

The following, which appeared Thursday 
in a local dally, gives one a very good Idea 
of bow the Coliseum stands at the present 
moment : "The keen competition of the Lon- 
don music halls, amounting In many In- 
stances to a fight for very existence, re- 
ceives s fresh object lesson to-day. After the 
troubles of the Lyceum come those of the Coli- 
seum. Only the raising of more capital can 
avert the Impending crisis in the affairs of 
the London Coliseum. Tbls Is the purport 
of the report of the company for the year 
ending Dec. 31, last. Toe directors state 
that they have done everything In their 
power to maintain the credit of the company 
and to raise the capital, having become per- 
sonally responsible for large sums. It Is 
obvious, however," continues the report, "that 
unless a large amount can be raised, and 
that on an early date, It will not be possible 
any longer to prevent creditors resorting to 
extreme measures, and as the directors have 
satisfied themselves that the necessary cap- 
ital can only be raised on prohibitive terms, 
If at all, from outside sources. It Is for the 
shareholders to say whether, for the sake of 
saving the property and the business, they 
will themselves provide the amount" The 
directors are confident that If the share- 
holders will find sufficient capital the com- 
panv wll yet be successful end remunerative. 
The amount required Is about eleven dollars 
per share. It Is shown In the report that 
the year's trading profit was about (57,726, 
and that there Is a balance at the 
credit of profit and loss, after providing 
for the debenture Interest, preference divi- 
dend, and other outgoings, of £4,080. The 
directors recommend that the balance should 
be carried forward. Further, It la pointed 
out that the directors have all along 
had great difficulties to contend with, owing 
to the coat of the building and Its equipment 
having been so greatly In excess of the orig- 
inal estimates and of the capital available. 
Unfortunately, the preference sbarea, which 
It was resolved to create and Issue in order 
to provide the necessary additional capital, 
were only applied for to the extent of about 
595,000. so that the relief obtained was 
merely temporary, as was shown la the bal- 
ance sheets. $421,345 was due to the com- 
pany's bankers and creditors. The "revue" 
produced at Easter was a great success, we 
are told, and the management feels confident 
that there Is a long and profitable run before 
It Creditors, however, were pressing, and 
however successful the production may be, 
It Is not to be expected that a crisis caa be 
avoided unless Bufflelent capital is raised to

Notes j-hom Buffalo Bill's Wild West. 
—At Tornl, March 29, we had two big audi- 
ences of country folk. We found them tbe 
same enthusiastic patrons as onr "agri- 
cultural" friends In tbe States. March 30 
found ua high up In the mountains at Pe- 
rugia. We arrived there late, and bad a long 
up-hill haul, but tbe show started at S p. h., 
and every available space was occupied. At 
night we packed up In a heavy snow storm. 
We arrived late again at Areszo, 81, and 
found a throng of people awaiting us. The 
stablea and cook tents were two miles from 
the lot, but performances were given to Beat- 
ing capacity, notwithstanding. At Florence, 
April 1-3, we had four turn aways out of 
Biz performances. Although the police and 
soldiery are fine throughout Italy, they were 
an especially fine looking body of men at 
Florence. Not only are tbey fine looking, 
but efficient as well. At Parma, 5, and Mo- 
dena, 0, capacity business ruled. At Bologna, 
where we exhibited 7 and 8, the lot was two 
miles out, with poor facilities for the public 
to get there, but we turned them away at 
both matinees, while the night houses were 
very good indeed. Here we were greeted by 
genial Mike Coy le, who was with us two years 
Id Great Britain, but could not Join us last 
year on account of having met with a serioui 
accident. Commencing wltb Forll, 0, we 
have three weeks of one day stands. The 
weather Is fine, health of company excellent, 
and, to use Manager Fred B. Hutchinson's 
own words, "We are doing a Jumbo business."

20, and was burled at Lancaster, Pa. She 
was slaty-eight years old, a native of Ireland, 
but a resident of Lancaster for the past sixty 
years. Her death was due to disease Incident 
to old age. She was well known and highly 
esteemed la that city, and was possessed of

Tha tlreleae and auccesafiil efforts of the

to the aid, not only of their unfortunate 
brothers and sisters, but of those outside, 

the undying history of the singe, individual-

. the . cause. Besides money, food and, clothes 
tbeybave given much time and energy Jn the 
rehearslog and acting of new plays and

appreciation will be given. 

in view of the hundreds of inquiries which 
Tin; Clipprb Is receiving from all parts of 
the world* regarding the fate of relatives and 
friends, we would advise all performers to 
notify their relatives and friends of their 
safety, and Jn- this way relieve the minds of 
many now in distress at the uncertainty of 
UlO situation.

Kimball Bros, write : "Just a few lines to 
let nil our frleds know that we escaped tbe 
earthquake. We stopped at 211 Turk Street. 
and the walls caved. We thought It was all 
oyer with us, but after n lot. of fighting we 
got out of the debris. You can't Imagine tlie 
feeling of being in an earthquake. It hap- 
pened nt 5.14ft In tbe morning, when iv 
were all sound asleep, and tbe Ilrst Inkling 
1 . had was as though somebody bud a coble 
and was trying to pull the house down. First 
It would heave In the air about five feet ami 
then it would shake from side to side, and 
the wood work la tbe house would crunch. 
Well, we got out of the house fifteen minutes 
after the quake, and got down to the ferry 
building before the tire broke out, and when 
we started hack up Market Street, we saw 
tires ia every direction. People were break- 
ing Into stores nnd taking away goods. I 
saw one fellow with a big bunch of Panama 
hats, but he didn't get very, far with them 
before an officer had him. We walked out 
to the Presidio, nnd stayed there tilt Sunday 
night. People were charging ten dollars to 
move a trunk, and it was an awful pity u> 
see poor old men and women pulling their 
trunks up the hills to Golden (lnte Park. 
Both places— Golden Gate Park and the Pre- 
sidio — were crowded with refugees. We hni 
tbe time of our lives getting down Market 
Htreet to the ferry building, Every time u 
soldier would see us he would level his gun 
and make us get to work clearing tbe streets. 
People were shot for refusing to work. We 
finally got down to the ferry and hough t 
tickets to Denver. The sights in 'Frisco 
were too horrible to mention, and we thank 
Clod we are alive. We lost our trunks ntm 
everything we had. We left for Denver Sun- 
day, April 2L», at eight o'clock, and-got Into 
New York the following Sunday, we want 
to, thank the good people of Denver for lie 
kind treatment they gave us, nnd for what 
they ore doing for all the refugees. We In- 
tend going back to the const in the Foil, as 
we were well treated."

writes : "Out company was in 'Frisco during

from Berkeley, Cal., April 28 : "I wan an eye 
witness of the recent destruction of Sau Fran-

being otr the slope of the , mountains, af- 
forded a view not given to many, and al-

sickening. -.yet,- i| a spectacle. It eclipsed nny 
similar calami tv of nncleut or modern times, 
The city being built ou numerous hills,

advantage, having' started from the water 
front. The names consumed structure after

numerous 1 reports -from 1 razing or dynamiting 
of buildings In advance of the Are struck as 
much terror to the hearts of refugees as tbe 
flames. The blasting was done to try and 
make an avenue, or gap, broad enough to cut 
off, lire flames, but In spite of every such 
effort the flames would lean on until they 
reached beyond Nob HID, the wealthy resi- 
dence district, which was n|so destroyed. As 
to tbe earthquake, which whs the forerunner 
of (he fire, !t gave one tbe Impression of bow 
litHfgnldrant Is man, always at the mercy of 
tbe Omnipotent, ucver realizing his condition 
until the Deity sends such, a visitation to 
awaken the dormant conscience. There have 
been several seismic disturbances of lesser 
nolc, but of hardly enough consequence to 
cause comuieut. The saddest feature Is the 
loss of life and the Injured, while the dis- 
tress Is quickly being lessened by tbe noble 
relief flowing In from nil quaricrs."

Dear old Dixie, we all

The heroes In blue and 
the boys In Southern 

For one flag, together 
united we stand, 

80 we'll give the yell we 
know so weir for Dixie 

Tho' the South before the war is a' mem'ry, * 

There are those who still remember the day, ; 
Gallant swords were draWn In honor of Dixie, 

When the flower of the South wore the grajr; 
And we're proud of the old South and all Its glories, 

And we're proud of the new South to-day, 
But we'll tell with pride our children the stories, 

Of the heroes who fought 'neath the gray.
